We present results of a multiwavelength study of the nearby spiral galaxy M51 (NGC 5194). We have obtained deep, high resolution, multi-frequency radio observations using the Very Large Array. We report the detection of numerous point sources, with 12 radio\/X-ray counterparts identified from a deep {\em Chandra} observation. Most of the radio emission is due to the presence of {\sc H ii} regions, supernovae, supernova remnants, and X-ray binaries. We report radio and X-ray emission from a region coincident with the position of SN1994I approximately nine years after maximum light.

This research has been supported by the following funding grants: NSF AST-0307279 (JJC), CXC GO1-2092B (CJS,REK,JJC), HST-AR-10669.01 (REK). CJS is a Cottrell Scholar sponsored by Research Corporation.
